Octopussy and the Living Daylights - Ian Lancaster Fleming

1966 - Jonathan Cape, London - First Edition
M looked coldly across the desk. It was going to be dirty work and Bond, because he belonged to the Double 0 section, had been chosen for it.

“You've got to kill this sniper. And you've got to kill him before he gets Agent 272. Is that understood?”

So, it was to be murder.

A fine first edition of the fourteenth and final publication by Ian Fleming in the 007 series, containing two short adventures; the title novella plus 'The Living Daylights'. These were later successfully filmed by EON productions with Bond played by Roger Moore (Octopussy, 1983) and Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, 1987).
